Travel Options & Directions

Brant Lake Dance Camp provides charter coach bus transportation to and from camp out of two locations in the New York City and Westchester areas. For campers not taking the bus, travel plans need to be made by parents and our office staff will then will arrange to have your daughter(s) met at the locally appropriate bus, train or airport location and brought directly to camp. Similarly, we will help coordinate departure arrangements to get those children who need get to the Albany airport, train or bus station to make their connections. Parents may also drop off and pick up their daughter by car if they choose.

More information about travel and your camper's stay will be included in an Information Booklet sent out in the early spring.
